    I have a Samsung 32" LCD HiDef tv 5 Series. I have a PS3 console. I put my bluray disc in, and i get to the menu and it says on the top of the tv "1920x1080i 60Hz" and the menu and previews look great. then i press play, it finds the signal, and then it changes to "1920x1080 24Hz" and the blu ray doesn't look like it does in the stores. I feel like im not getting the full effect, either it's the tv or the player? Im not really sure.

    Does this go for other blu ray players? Is there a way I can change settings or something? Thanks for your help so far.

    This happen because your PS3 console does not support "1920x1080i 60Hz" resolution so it goes to "1920x1080 24Hz"...

  • Mukesh Kumar Jul 17, 2009

    It's a hardware configuration so you can not change it.......

Can't get my movies to play in 1080i


Most high-definition movie recordings are in 1080p format. Your video player would have to send the video as 1080i before the TV will play it if the TV is set to 1080i. (Theoretically, 1080i would do better on high-speed action, but 1080p is less prone to odd visual effects such as Moire banding, so that is usually the preferred format, especially given the improvements in video processing speed over the last decade.)

Mac Blu-ray to iPhone 4 Converter,Rip BD to 720p HD Videos MP4

Even though there is antenna issue with iPhone 4, this does not influence the international launch date of iPhone 4 and iPad on July 30, 2010. Apple is offering free cases for iPhone 4 users, and offer refunds to unhappy customers. iPhone 4 will be available in more than 17 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain , Sweden and Switzerland.
Despite the antennagate, Apple always leads the smartphone trend. The 720p HD video recording and playing, and the retina display make it easier to enjoy HD videos. Wanna play HD videos on iPhone 4 with favorite Blu-ray movies? Follow the step-by-step guide to convert Blu-ray to 720p iPhone 4 videos with Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.
Step 1. Load Blu-ray movies to Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac.
Connect your Blu-ray Rom with your Apple iMac/MacBook, and insert the Blu-ray disc. Run Aunsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac as your Mac BD to iPhone 4 Converter, and click the "BD/DVD Folder" button to load Blu-ray videos.
Step 2. Choose iPhone 4 720p MP4 output format.
Click the "Format" option and choose iPhone > iPhone 4 H.264 720P(*.mp4) to transcode BD to iPhone 4 MP4 .

Step 3. Rip 1080i/1080p BD to 720p iPhone 4 video.
Click the convert button and the Mac Blu-ray to iPhone 4 converter starts ripping 1080i/1080p BD movie to 720p iPhone 4 video.
After the conversion is finished, just connect iPhone 4 with iMac/MacBook Pro, and sync HD videos to iPhone 4 via iTunes.
Tips:
1. Before clicking the convert button, you can choose subtitle language to display on the iPhone 4 video.
2. If you notice that your BD movie includes forced subtitles, you can check the box for "Forced Subtitles", and only the translation for alien langue will display on iPhone 4 video. You should select a subtitle before checking the forced subtitles option.

So you just got your new HDTV and the piture isn't as good as you thought.


There are some things you need to know when setting up your HDTV.

First off, you need to use HDMI cables to connect your tv to your cable box or you will not get HD. That being said the first thing you will find is that HDMI cables are expensive. Although you can buy a really cheapo cheap one, be careful. Make sure it can support 1080p or the max resolution your TV displays at. Some of the cheaper ones can only support up to 720p.

So you hooked it up to the cable box using an good HDMI cable and you still do not have the picture you should. There are a few things you may still need too do to get 1080i out of it. Yes, I said 1080i. Even though your tv may be up too 1080p, cable and dish networks only transmit up too 1080i. But don't worry, 1080i is amazing for cable/dish.

First thing you need to make sure of is, does your cable/dish receiver support HD? If you have had the same box for a long time, it may not. You will have to call your provider to get an updated box. If you recently got cable/dish and the box is new, most likely your good to go. Also, it will most likely say on it, HDTV, 1080i or something related to HD on it.

Now you are good to go with you box because it is in fact HD compatible. Some cable boxes may need to be configured for HD. You don't need an HDTV signal if you don't have an HDTV, and not every one does, so why send the unit configured for HD. You need to go into your cable/dish settings and make sure you set the HD set up to display in 1080i.

Okay you set the box to 1080i. There still could be some setting on the TV if your not getting the best picture.

Make sure you are on an HD channel. Make sure you do not have zoom on, and that the TV is set to display an aspect ratio that is determined by the program, or auto. Not all TV's have these settings. Likewise, some tv's allow you to select the max resolution, if this is the case make sure it is set to 1080p, the max it can be.

You should at this point have an excellent picture on the HD channels. Not all channels are HD.

Now, a few other things not worthy as a new owner of an HDTV.

a standard dvd player does not play in high def. they have a max resolution of 480p. 480p is going to look really good if its the first time you watch a dvd on an HDTV, but it can be a lot better. For around starting at $45 and up, you can buy a DVD player that can upscale your dvd's to 1080p when you use HDMI and you will get amazing picture. But for around starting at anywhere from $100 to $150 and up, you can get your self a blu-ray player that will play blu-ray disks, and give you amazing beyond belief picture, and it will upscale your dvd's.

So you got a blu-ray. First thing I can say is I hope your refresh rate is at least 120hz or better. 60hz may disappoint you with a blu-ray player.

Blu-ray can play movies in their native 24 frames a second format of which they were filmed in. However, at 60hz, you will run into a problem trying to play the movie in 24fs. now I am not going to get technical with this, just to let you know, you need 120hz or better to use 24fs. You can turn it off, but you will get blur and it will not be as smooth. As well, with most players you must enable 24fs in the settings, usually by default, it is off,

So to recap:
  • Make sure your cab/dish box is HD compatible.
  • Always use HDMI cables.
  • Check settings on cable/dish box and make sure its set to 1080i.
  • don't use zoom.
  • If applicable, make sure tv settings are at max res of 1080i
  • you need an upscaling DVD player or Blu-ray player to watch your DVD's in HD.
  • Also must us HDMI.
  • Can't use 24fs if you have 60hz refresh rate, but can if 120 or better.
  • 24s is usually off by default.

Need to activate dvdxcopy gold


this software in my own experience is not very user friendly. I recommend getting on a torrent site and trying different DVD software instead actually. Unless you purchased a key, then click on help, and there you should be able to enter your key code to activate in the 'About' section or Register.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

Cant go from 480 i to 1080 any suggestions?


How do you have your Blu-Ray player hooked up?

First, you have to set your Blu-Ray player to output 1080i (the highest resolution that the Mitsubishi WS-55511 can support). Then you hook up the player via component to the DTV component input on your set (it's the only input that can handle 480i/p and 1080i).

Good luck.
